Lynn Shawcroft produces a new comedy album from the late Mitch Hedberg (when you read Lynn’s name back, make sure to drag out the extra “n”). The material on this CD is half finished much like his wonderful life. I miss Mitch’s work. I can’t pass a frozen banana without thinking that I may not want it now, but later I just might. He thought differently and connected thoughts that have not been connected. “Do You Believe in Gosh?” is something special as we get to hear some works in progress, but Mitch’s act was always kind of that way. Hedberg shares his observations of cold air balloons, gives us insights about comedy clubs, and furthers his obsession with dismemberment. Overall this CD makes for a great last call, even if it is Nyquil.
